A new season brings new shows. Beginning Labor Day — Monday, September 3 — there's a new sheriff in town on MeTV. Television icon Carol O'Connor shines each weekday on In the Heat of the Night. Then, on weekends, we welcome a beloved space cowboy and two unlikely farmers.

IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT - WEEKDAYS
Carol O'Connor (All in the Family) showed his dramatic side on this television adaptation of the Sidney Poitier film, which took home the Academy Award for Best Picture in 1967. A police chief teams with a new detective from Philadelphia to solve crimes and seek justice in the fictional town of Sparta, Mississippi. O'Connor's comeback will follow two other wonderful second acts of TV icons on our schedule — Andy Griffith's Matlock and Dick Van Dyke's Diagnosis Murder.
